elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time.

George Carlin - Class Clown

I don't normally post comedy or spoken word albums, and despite the fact that I'm a little late on the draw, I thought it would be appropriate to dedicate a post to the late comedian George Carlin. Fear not though, I will return to posting music tomorrow. There isn't much that I can say that hasn't already been said about the man by news organizations around the world. The world has truly lost a comedic legend, and it will probably be a long time before anyone fills his shoes - if ever. I thought it would be fitting to share the album that turned an virtually unknown sitcom actor into a comedy legend. The album as a whole is great of course, but it is most treasured for the legendary "Seven Words You Can Never Say On Television" routine, which I also included a video of below. R.I.P. George.. You won't be forgotten.

‘We’re Late For Class’ Jams With Jim Morrison

Via a medium, stoner college jam band We’re Late For Class performed a 14 minute improvisational space jam along with the disembodied voice of Jim Morrison, the late singer of The Doors.

“Why not!?,” said a We’re Late For Class spokesman. “It's cheaper than a living singer, what with classified ads, lodging and alcohol... and besides, you know how lead singers are to deal with.”

It’s entitled The Jim Morrison Seance Tapes and is their 30th. It’s available for free at the band’s blog, http://werelateforclass.blogspot.com

“So you don't think this is just something we slapped together with old recordings and ProTools... (you can hear) the engineer ask Jim for the ‘post-death stuff... the stuff without copyrights,’” the spokesman persisted. “In the end,” he said, ”it went smoother than our Screamin' Jay Hawkins seance.”

The free download also includes a 14 minute instrumental version for those that don’t buy the premise.

This was my first comedy album! I was 4 and forced my mother to play the record OVER and OVER for at least a year. The Swallow bit just killed me...
